How Long After I Stop Taking Progesterone Suppositories Will My Period Return
The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Can you tell me about it's like to take progesterone suppositories for infertility & experienced a heavy painful 1st period?
Sure: Progesterone suppositories are inserted once or twice daily inside your vagina. Most do not have any problems with it.

Am on progesterone suppository. Is there any way to find placenta has taken over progesterone production at 12 wks before stopping suppository?
Luteal phase defect: I use progesterone in the 1st trimester quite a bit for borderline progesterones and luteal phase defect. I don't check the levels after 12 weeks because the placenta produces a sufficient amount and losses from low progesterone occur much earlier. Certainly a progesterone can be done once off the suppositories, but while you're taking them the level in your blood will reflect total progesteron ...Read more
Not really: It's common to have some brown spotting early in pregnancy. It is not caused by the Progesterone though. An ultrasound in a week or so should be able to see if you have a viable embryo. In the meantime, you should continue the Progesterone as directed by your doctor. And call the doctor if you have any bright red bleeding! ...Read more

I had my HCG levels tested with 2311 on Wednesday then agin on Friday 2324, started brown spotting on Friday night. Started 100 mg of progesterone suppositories on Saturday night and now I have reddish-brown spotting. Is this normal?
Hcg: That's not really a good rise in hcg. Would usually expect it to rise about 15% or more in 48 hours. It sounds like you need an ultrasound soon to make sure your pregnancy is progressing normally. One of the causes of nearly plateau'd hcg levels would be a tubal pregnancy (which could be causing your spotting). I would repeat the level tomorrow (monday) and get it for an Ultrasound this week ...Read more

To early to say: I need more information. How often did your doctor do the quantitative Beta HCG. Those numbers could be ok if they were done daily. Most of the time we will do them every 2-3 days. The HCG level is suppose to double every 2-3 days. If you were doing HCG levels every 3 days and your progesterone is low, the prognosis is guarded. Possible problems could be a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. ...Read more
